About Basha Scheinberg (Herman)
Rebbetzin Scheinberg was a daughter of Rav Yaakov Yosef and Rebbetzin Aidel Herman zt”l, the renowned mokirei rabonon, machnisei orech and Torah pioneers in America.
Rebbetzin Scheinberg passed away at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim at the age of 96. The Rebbetzin and Rav Scheinberg were married for close to 80 years. The levaya will take place this evening, at 8 p.m., at Yeshiva Torah Ore.
Born on February 22, 1913, Rebbetzin Scheinberg was a remarkable woman who stood at the side of her husband for decades as a true eizer kenegdo, allowing her husband to immerse himself in Torah and guide his countless talmidim. She was the true eim, mother, to the hundreds of bochurim at Yeshiva Torah Ore in Kiryat Mattesdorf, Yerushalayim. She lavished special affection upon the foreign bochurim, making them feel at home in the yeshiva and sharing a good word or some chizuk when needed.
As a daughter of Rav Yaakov Yosef Herman - known as “All for the Boss” for the book written about him - Rebbetzin Scheinberg, from a young age, was imbued with strong hashkafos and chashivus for Torah and lomdei Torah. She grew up in a home that was literally open to all Yidden who needed a warm meal, a comfortable bed, or a listening ear. These ideals stayed with her for her entire life, as she continued the legacy of her unforgettable father by continuing in his path of Torah and gemillus chassodim.
